Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

SOLVED: Notifications error for both conf and unsubscribe

Postby pauravshukla » Sun Oct 02, 2011 3:40 pm


On my OCS installation (version 2.3.3.-1) at (http://imraweb.org/emerging/2012/index. ... c/2012ecm/), when an unregistered user subscribes to the notifications list, s/he is sent an email to confirm the request and add that email to the list.

However, when a user clicks on the confirmation link it stats:

"There was an error confirming your subscription."

If a user tries to stop receiving notification emails, after entering the correct username and pass it stats:

"There was an error unsubscribing you. Please ensure your email address and password are correct."

Following this post (viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6898), I have applied patch 6262 and 6323 which solved the 404 error I was receiving earlier but the above error is persistent.

Could anyone help with this please?

P.S.> There seem to be a patch 5984 which suggest a file "classes/notification/NotificationSettingsDAO.inc.php" However, I couldn't find one in my OCS install.

SOLVED: EDIT: Applied the patch 5984 for OJS (http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=5984) by copying that file in the said folder (classes/notification/NotificationSettingsDAO.inc.php) and it works.
